November 2016


The November newsletter is sort of our congratulations issue:  we offer congratulations to the club points club champion, the Reno winners, the most improved golfers for the year, and the Bartley Cavanaugh scramble winners.  In addition, our club election results are in, so we’ll have that info, too.  We have already congratulated Brett Svobodny for his club championship win at Lincoln Hills, but it never hurts to repeat the congratulations.  Great win, Brett.


The Reno trip found perfect weather for the second year in a row.  Sandy Davis started things off with an informal outing at Grizzly Ranch with 20 players.  Nice course, good condition, lots of fun for the participants.  The regularly scheduled tournaments at Red Hawk Hills Course on Friday and the Lakes Course on Saturday found more of the same—great weather, challenging courses, good course conditions, lots of fun and a turnout of over 40 members and guests.  I heard, though, that the greens were very fast and treacherous, especially on the Lakes Course, maybe too much fun for some of the players.  Remarkably, Joe Gough was able to play both Red Hawk courses after surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon.  Those rounds were not exactly pain-free, but Joe hung in there the whole way.  Joe had sustained the injury at the Dry Creek tournament in August, so that was a very fast recovery.

After Friday’s round at the Hills Course, the club got together for drinks and hors d‘oeuvres, funded by your Club OfficersJudy Davenport did much of the organizing and heavy lifting, assisted greatly by Linda Buzzini, Nancy Luke and Peggy Mucci.  They put out a lovely selection of beverages and fancy snacks.  Thanks, ladies, for all your hard work. 


Rosanna Evans won the Lou Mucci trophy at the Lakes Course, named for one of the original members of our club.  Rosanna shot a 90 gross, 64 net round to win by two strokes over Renee Wildenberg.  Congratulations, Rosanna, what a great round of golf!  Peggy Mucci’s name was added to her husband’s namesake trophy after coming in second five out of the seven years for the event.  Congratulations to you, too, Peggy.




This is probably not a huge surprise, but Brad Erway won the year-long competition for the points championship.  He didn’t lead for the entire season, but he was always near the top.  In the end, his excellent golf in the last few events closed the deal for him.  Congratulations, Brad, you played like a champion all year.

Dan Nelson topped the men players for the biggest improvement in handicap this year.  He lowered his index from 22.0 to 16.7, an improvement of 5.3 strokes.


Lee Ann Lobaugh showed the most improvement amongst the qualifying women players in the club.  She reduced her index from 25.4 to 24.1, a difference of 1.3 strokes. 

Congratulations to Dan and Lee Ann for their improvement and great play.



We got a real break from the weather for our final event.  The forecast was for temperatures in the mid-60’s with some rain and wind.  Instead, we got temperatures in the mid-70’s with some sunshine and just a little wind.  In scrambles, the name of the game is eagles, birdies and putts.  If a team doesn’t make the putts, they don’t get the eagles and birdies.  If they don’t get those scores, the team is DOA.  The winners (the teams that did make their putts):


1st Place: Net Score 51 (Team Handicap 9)

Renee Wildenberg

Brad Erway

Steve Eason

Theresa Eason



2nd Place: Net Score 51 (Team Handicap 11)

As we do every fall, the club voted for their officers for next year.  Well, some of the members voted; many did not.  Nonetheless, the results are in.  The primary office-holders agreed to run for their positions for another year and were elected without opposition:



President  Nick Schiaretti
Vice-President  Mike Morrow
Treasurer John Valdes

Judy Davenport



Five members ran for the three Board of Directors positions, which are two-year terms; those elected were:

Sandy Davis

Tom Page

Jim Svobodny, who will also head up membership and recruiting


In addition, Renee Wildenberg will continue as Tournament Director, Cheryl Nelson will continue as Handicap Chair and Rosanna Evans will oversee elections.



Along with congratulations to all the various winners, I want to say thank you from the entire club to President Nick Schiaretti and Tournament Director Renee Wildenberg for the amazing amount of work they did in running the club this past year.  We have a great club; Nick and Renee deserve so much of the credit for that success.


Thanks also to Vice-President Mike Morrow, Treasurer John Valdes, Secretary Judy Davenport, Handicap Chair Cheryl Nelson, Website Chair Will Wong and Elections Chair Jim Svobodny and Rosanna Evans.  They, too, put in a lot of hard work to support our club.  More thanks to the Board of Directors:  Sandy Davis, Terry Snyder and myself.



We’re all done for 2016, but Nick has already sent out a preliminary listing of the tournament schedule for 2017.  I know there will be changes in dates and courses before the schedule is finalized, but it looks very good so far.  Definitely plan to play all the events next year.





It’s almost time to renew your TRGC membership.  Renee has already sent out the renewal form, so don’t procrastinate!  Get that form completed and send it with your check to club Secretary Judy Davenport immediately. 


Right now, the club has 95 members, although our tournament participation has dropped to just under 40 players per event.  As with any year, most of our members will renew but some will not, for a variety of reasons. The lifeblood of any organization is to recruit new members.  If this key component is neglected, the organization will ultimately fail.   With this in mind, TRGC needs more new members, especially ones who will compete in most of the tournaments! 


Two Rivers has a lot to offer its members:

  • The Board of Directors spends a great deal of time setting up a tournament schedule that includes high-quality courses while at the same time keeping the entry fees down
  • The club offers close completion in multiple flights, giving more competitors a chance to win prize money
  • Most of our tournaments incorporate shotgun starts, the early starts helping beat the summer heat and all of them shortening the wait for scoring results
  • I play in many different foursomes and I’m happy to say what a pleasure it is to meet new members and enjoy their company and golf skills during each round of golf; don’t overlook the value of good, compatible playing companions when evaluating a club


Keep those friends, co-workers and other golf buddies coming!  This is the ideal time to recruit new members for the coming 2017 golf season.  Be sure to invite them to meet our club and play as guests in a tournament.  Don’t forget, you can take $5 off your renewal fee for the following year for each new member you bring to the club (limit of five new members per person per year).



Nick has passed the word that member Zach Peart has entered hospice care due to melanoma.  Truly Zach and his family need our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time.
